About The Book
A Lycan descendant of Gilgamesh and Enkidu, Tristan is not as extraordinary as his ancestors. He is an average warrior, unremarkable throughout. But this fact does not trouble him because he has found his Twin Flame, the one person destined to be his, who will love him unconditionally, life after life.
Then his Flame betrays him, leaving him shattered and dying. Brokenhearted, Tristan dissolves the sacred bond and leaves. His best friend, Ushna, accompanies him, vowing to guard and protect him, and Tristan slowly comes to realize that love does not require a sacred bond.
But if he hopes to keep the love he chooses, he will have to face the magical force that swirls deep inside him. Together, Tristan and Ushna will confront ancient secrets, lies, mythical creatures, and the return of absent gods…
Author’s Note: Sumeria’s Sons is a paranormal urban fantasy that slowly unveils the lost myths and legends of the modern day Lycan people. This series does eventually feature an mpreg relationship, but it is not the sole focus of the plot. This book was previously released by another publisher. Only light editing changes have been made to this book.
This story is a good mix of fantasy and urban fantasy. Mythology also played a part in the story, which tells how each person has a twin flame, another soul with which each Lycan can share a symbiotic connection. If that connection is neglected, the soul feels neglected and damaged. When nourished, the bonded flames are at their best in strength, joy, and control.
Here, Tristan Jannick bonded to Alpha Theo Sullivan, but Theo didn’t reciprocate. It caused Tristan to suffer mental, emotional, and physical anguish. After a trial, Tristan was allowed to sever the one way bond. He also went in a self imposed Exile with his best friend Ushna Ahura Yazda as company.
When an event caused Ushna to lose control of his wolf and go Lupe, Tristan was able to soothe the Lupe until Ushna regain control. That event created a cascade of events which revealed the truth about Tristan’s past and changed the course of his future.
The story was a good beginning to an interesting series where gods played a role in the love matches and love meddling of two lives unlocking the two flames potential and each serving as an anchor for the other.
This is my first story by the author and I was completely engaged. The writing style was fluid and paced well. It flowed well for me. The main characters were really likable. The patience, friendship, and loyalty between Tristan and Ushna was endearing. I loved the twist to Tristan’s past, and I look forward to seeing how he will embrace his destiny. This one will be a treat for UF & Fantasy lovers who enjoy mythology.
